Owner description: American Pro Diving Center offers guided Crystal River dive and snorkel Manatee tours for over 18 years in florida. Our snorkel with manatee tours are guided by in water professional divemasters and is just one of the reasons we received many awards from state and local educational systems as well as the National Geographic Dive Center Award from PADI and National Geographic. Experience manatee tours with all the comforts that a five star facility has to offer in Crystal River, Florida.Our trips are successful because the dive masters educate on the manatee and the manners of being in their environment while on the manatee snorkel tours. The guides enter the water with you so that both you and the Manatees have a safe and enjoyable time even if you are new to snorkeling. This can be the experience of a lifetime on our Crystal River manatee snorkel.

For years we've been coming to Homasassa, and Crystal River, Fl. 16 to be exact. We usually rent our own pontoon boat to snorkel with the Manatees . This time we decided to let someone else manage the boat. We heard great things about this company , American Pro DIVE Shop. Where we met Capt. "Glenn " We even requested... More

American Pro Diving is a great place to go to swim with the manatees. Our boat captain Cody was fantastic. We went to two different springs to see the most manatees. There were dozens. Cody was taking video of the manatees and our participants. Too much fun. The American Pro Diving Center is a very nice building with extremely friendly... More

I would recommend American Pro Diving Center over any manatee tour company in Crystal River, hands down! The staff were very courteous and professional while still being down to earth and fun. We saw a ton of manatees on our trip (January is a great time to see manatees in the warm springs). We were able to get close enough... More

It was a rather cool day (58 degrees) but Captain Shawn did his best to keep us warm, making sure the flaps were sealed to keep out the wind and providing plenty of hot chocolate upon our exit from the water. He took us to a relatively uncrowded spot (The Keyhole) and while the water was a bit murky, we... More

My wife has been wanting to swim with manatees for many, many years, and we finally had our chance when we met some friends from Chicago in Orlando for New Year's Eve. 6 of us made the trip (my friends college-aged son opted to not go along - thought it would be too boring), and our guide Shawn was excellent....

We had a great day snorkeling and diving with this company. Our boat captain was determined that everyone have a great day and get to spend quality time with the manatees. The staff was fun and relaxed but always professional. It was an amazing experience, and I highly recommend American Pro Dive Center.

My family of 5 went on the Crystal River tour in early January. The check in at the dive center and the wetsuit rental was easy. I was somewhat apprehensive because the crowd seemed large and I had read that weekends were busy. Our guide was Cory. He was great! It was crowded, but we waited out the crowd and... More

Prior to our visit with American Pro we have never gone to any of the springs in Florida to dive. It was a last minute decision to go and the date we went out they visited Paradise Springs. We had to walk from our cars to the site with our gear, which was a first, but we normally do boat... More

This was an amazing experience! Booking the tour was very easy, even last minute, and all the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We went on the Homosassa River snorkel tour with Cory, and he is a fantastic captain! He's great with the manatees (one of them in particular swims up to him and plays with him almost every day),...

We had a very early start and a long drive to Crystal River from Orlando but it was all worth while and one of our best days in Florida. Our dive master was Corey who was very knowledgeable about the area and diving. We spent the morning snorkelling in Crystal Springs with Manatees, and scuba diving in a cave beneath... More
